    About me

    I've directed award-winning campaigns for Virgin Trains, BBC Creative, UKTV, 4Creative and Hewlett Packard. I've created a children's sketch show for Youtube and directed 5 short films for BBC Three as part of the BBC Laughs series.

    With over 10 years in the industry, I've been responsible for putting David Tennant in a ketchup bottle for charity, Charles Dance sounding more earnest than usual, Mr Blobby singing on a train, rabbits attempting the David Brent dance and countless short films which amuse me but baffle everyone else.
